All,

I've been lurking here for about a year and have really learned a lot about Les Paul's. I was wondering about my 87 custom lite Les Paul. I've had it since 1987 and I just don't see much mentioned about them. What is the general feeling about these guitars? They don't really sound that different than a full bodied LP to my ears but it sure is more kind on my shoulder!

Thanks
Jay

I don't have much to say about the model but it's a great looking guitar. I've come close to pulling the trigger on a few '87 LPs (I am always looking for a good 1987 guitar since that was my birth year).

Talk about coincidence. Gibson have just reissued these.

Ditto. There's actually a nice wine red custom on the bay right now.

Have an '88 in heritage cherry sunburst which I love- and yes I agree about the tone!

I just think the world of your LP. I wish I owned it. A Custom that doesn't weigh 12 lbs? What's not to like? I'm turning as green as Grand Toad!

Thanks. Every once in a while I have the crazy notion of selling her and getting something different. Then I come to my senses and realize what a great guitar she has been for 26 years.
